Seven luminaries in water signs and the recent flirtation between Venus and King Neptune send a wash of artistic vibrations over the environment. The soul has senses beyond the body. Use them. Strong emotions will stir up new attractions. Let bold creativity burst forth. Express yourself, and enjoy the expressions of others.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You mastered the art of being an exciting person long before you knew it was an art. You might say that excitement just comes with the territory of being an Aries. Others expect it from you now.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ve heard that times are tough, but you must be tougher than the times, because you go forward undaunted — maybe even a little pushy. If anything, the times seem to be intimidated by you today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You create loveliness in your personal environment, and not because you’re an artistic elitist but because it’s life affirming to do so. Through the beautiful tone you set, you’ll help others feel good.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Feelings come and go. If you have someone in your life whose love for you is more constant than the passing emotions of the moment, that is something to celebrate.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As you stroll a rather ordinary setting, you’ll feel out of place. True, you were meant for the extraordinary. But sometimes it’s up to you to make the environmental transformation happen.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The expression is true: The days are long, but the years are short. What can you do for 15 minutes a day that, by this time next year, will have added up to something remarkable?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can be sure that your presence is a comfort to someone. You’ve suspected this, but it’s wonderful to hear it outright and to feel the truth of it. You’ll love knowing that you’ve helped.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some people wish they knew what others were thinking. You’re different. You have a pretty good sense of what others are thinking, not to mention feeling, and you’re not always sure you want to know.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you participate in nature, you do not do so as an outsider and curator of the wild. You are nature, too. At least for some of the time, you will feel at peace with your place in the natural order.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mind is open. That doesn’t mean it’s empty. It is more challenging to be open-minded when you know as much about the world as you do. But you succeed in this because you let your curiosity lead.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Just because you believe an idea to be true doesn’t mean you shouldn’t question it. You’ll have to poke around a bit for the truth, but when you find it, the sunshiny light will pour in.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It amazes you that people often don’t know what will make them happy. Part of the reason is that there is so much misinformation in the world on the subject. You’ll educate someone on the matter today.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 1). The warm, playful air about you attracts like-minded friends. The needs of your heart will be met in your professional life in April. You could even move for work and find that your new environs are just what were needed for personal success. June begins a deep renovation. Thankful loved ones celebrate you in August. Scorpio and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 30, 2, 38 and 11.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Mental pursuits that you take on will cast you in a very attractive light. TAURUS: Stay true. Your loyalty will be rewarded over time. GEMINI: Alone, you’ll get stuck on a project, but you’ll be proud of what you can accomplish once you invite a partner to help. CANCER: A rare rowdy mood could inspire you to follow the bright lights and noise of the crowd. LEO: A small dose of fear will bring a delicious adrenaline rush to your romantic picture. VIRGO: Your gentle, patient way conveys strength. Someone opens up to you because of this. LIBRA: You may be concerned about your image and take extra care with the way you look, but what a loved one really cares about is the way you look at him (or her). SCORPIO: Be happy, or be right? Choose one. SAGITTARIUS: If you really saw a person in the ordinary light of reality, you might not fall so deeply in love. But what would be the fun in that? CAPRICORN: Realizing that you don’t need someone will make you relax around that person. AQUARIUS: Someone responds amorously to your purposefulness, focus and determination. PISCES: When in doubt, take a deep breath and smile. You’re hotter that way.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Does Scorpio ever wonder what the parents would think about a new paramour? Is Pisces ever the least bit concerned about the judgments of friends and community members? Well, not this weekend, and certainly not if they are a couple. Too in love to care is the more likely scenario. And for now, the stars support their desire to live in a bubble of romantic oblivion.
